This book blew me away and I could hardly wait to get my hands on the second one, Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood. Actually, I think Little Alters is the best of the two. The film combined the two and was titled after the second book. Though in no way the same writing style, the story, hard, honest, and southern, smacks of Reynolds Priceness. You can't help but want to understand the most imperfect characters.more
I finished this and went straight into Divine Secrets. I am southern and it is so endearing to read a book dripping with southern life. Very enjoyable book, it starts light and funny but there is a dark part to this book. Can't wait to finish the second and move on to the third in the series!more
This book is best read after "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood". It shows the Walker family from the point of view of other family members as well as Siddalee. It starts off light in tone but becomes even darker than "Divine Secrets" towards the end of the book.more
The first book about the crazy walker family and the unstoppable ya-yas. A must have.more

I enjoyed the friendships in this book. I also enjoyed the "southerness" of it. It almost makes me want to go back and visit Louisiana again...but not really.more
I tried reading Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by this author quite a while ago and could not get into it so when I started reading this book I was quite prepared that this was going to go the same way but surprise! - I really enjoyed this book and will now try Divine Secrets again.I loved the characters, especially Chaney and Willetta and found the book to be both heartwarming and emotional. I am so glad I read it.Back Cover Blurb:Little Altars Everywhere offers another look into the turbulent, unconventional and often hilarious lives of the quirky Walker clan of Thornton, Louisiana. Blending postbellum electricity with an off-beat Catholic pedigree, the Walkers take turns imparting the family history, bringing a whole new meaning to the term Southern Gothic.Little Altars Everywhere is often outrageous and wildly funny and yet beneath each comic turn lies the dark reality of life on the Pecan Grove Plantation.more
